Doosan Infracore Joins European Demolition Association

Founded in 1978, the EDA is the leading platform for national demolition associations, demolition contractors and suppliers in Europe. The EDA is also an important international organisation, maintainng strong contacts with similar bodies in other parts of the world, including Asia and the USA.
Commenting on joining the EDA, Gilles Bendaoud, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Doosan Infracore Europe, said:
“Demolition has always been an important market for Doosan. Our new membership at the EDA is a significant move as we continue our expansion in the demolition market both in Europe and globally. It also nicely complements the launch of our DX235DM demolition excavator, the first model in our new range of High Reach Demolition Excavators for international markets. We will add two further models in the range - the DX380DM and DX530DM later this year.”
Dedicated to looking after, promoting and protecting the interests of the demolition industry in Europe, the EDA sets and promotes European standards in demolition techniques and promotes recycling of demolition debris. Among the other roles of the EDA are the body’s involvement in and impact on health and safety legislation in the industry.
